A Surprising Love Story

book cover image The Spirit of the Horse

From the first time he rode, at age ten, William Shatner has felt a deep love for horses. Now he is inviting us to share the reins.

Whether riding them, communicating with them, or simply appreciating their beauty, Shatner has been enthralled by horses. For decades, he has sought to bring that joy to others -- children, veterans, and those with disabilities, among others -- through his annual Hollywood Charity Horse Show.
